Connect with Abena Apraku
Dr. Apraku is welcoming new patients for video appointments. As a Board-certified M.D. psychiatrist, she specializes in providing psychiatric diagnostic assessments and treatment for anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, OCD and PTSD. As a well-rounded provider, her focus is on medication management (including for patients wishing to decrease reliance on medication) in combination with extensive psycho-education. Read more about her approach at apraku.com/services.
Effective psychiatry requires a relationship between patient and provider founded on trust and mutual understanding. Dr. Apraku's goal is to build such long-lasting relationships to get your mental health as good as it can be. She has a particular interest in treating young adults with non-traditional backgrounds, including minority social groups.
Through secure video, Dr. Apraku can treat anyone located in state. The practice does not bill insurance carriers directly but instead provides a superbill which patients may use to claim out-of-network benefits. New patients are welcome to self-schedule their first appointment directly at apraku.com/book. We look forward to working with you!
